Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in the works in my head for quite a while. I have always loved looking at fruit tarts in the grocery store and bakery, but they are such a disappointment whenever I actually try them. I don't much care for pastry crust or custard, which already kills two thirds of it. Good … Continue reading Coconut Cream Fruit Tart


Snowflakes, Super Bowl, and Smoothies

I should probably add snowflakes in again at the end of the title. We have so much! A lot has happened in the past week, and it’s been a while since my last post! I have spent four of the last 8 workdays working at home as we have been bombarded by snow and freezing … Continue reading Snowflakes, Super Bowl, and Smoothies

This started during my time in Southern California (typical), when I had a snickerdoodle smoothie at a Long Beach bar called NatureWell (recipe posted … Continue reading My Week of Smoothies

Clean eating is a diet based on only fresh food (nothing processed) and relies mostly on fruits, vegetables, healthy grains, and lean meat/fish. Its goal is to detoxify your body, leaving … Continue reading Clean Eating Part 2: Lunch

Clean Eating Part 1: Breakfast

Last week, my aunt, cousin, and I decided to partake in a “clean eating challenge.” I had found this challenge on Buzzfeed, of all places, when it showed up on my Facebook newsfeed a few weeks ago. It is a two-week challenge consisting of a meal plan made up of three meals and two snacks … Continue reading Clean Eating Part 1: Breakfast
